Now you get why I get excited when D has a trip. Doesn't mean I don't love him, but it changes the routine when he's here!

Awesome!

************************************************** ***
I agreed whilst at tennis yesterday to sub in a fun class this morning - and as it turns out, this one is mostly composed of my team, so it will really be good! Though, I do think complaint lady is in it, too. But she was SO much better yesterday that I have high hopes!

I'm also all wound up about the Olympic decision today. One of our groomsmen, D's college roomie, is the Chief of Bid Operations for Chicago, so we have all this cool stuff, he's there, he went to Beijing's games to check them out and brought us swag - and so I feel very personally invested.

Tonight is the school's ice cream social, where they also do a cake walk. I agreed to provide a cake for that, then they were desperate for more so I said I'd bring in two items (they don't necessarily have to be cakes...) But I hate baking - don't mind cooking dinner and stuff, but baking just isn't my thing - so I need to go buy a couple of things and get them to the school. They wanted the donations in before school lets out, which is fine as I don't want to have to get to the social at the start - it's two hours, which is just too long. I know if we go at the start, we'll end up having a hard time getting out the door, so I'm hoping to not go until a bit later.

None of this is that hard to get done - I just run by the store on the way back from tennis, go drop it at the school and I'm done - but since it's again 40 degrees this morning, I want to curl up under a blanket!

I hope everyone has a good start to their Friday!

When is the announcement coming out?

HAve fun at the social!

==========================

Good Morning all! HAd the ear doctor appointment yesterday. On top of everyhting else I have nerve damage in my left ear Can't hear high frequency stuff. HAve to go for an MRI. WTH? I turned 42 and I am falling apart It's basically the same typoe of hearing loss my mother has, so I eventually will have to get a hearing aid. Oh well, things could be worse..right!

Had Shawmont Night at Ritas Water Ice. The school basically took over and we earned 25% of the gross profits for a 4 hour time period. The kids had a ball and the teachers were "celebrity scoopers".

Then my lttle cousin came over so Jim couls help her study for the Praxis test (Test to become a teacher). She was having problems with some of the math stuff.

My neighbor is taking me out shopping and to lunch today TOnight the boys have cub scouts. TOmorrow we are heading down to visit JIm's old boss and then taking Jimmy to see Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs. Sunday we have soccer.

HAve a great day everyone!

Oh Janet---I'm so sorry--I know you thought you had some wax problems or something routine. Did they put that little thing over your bone (behind the ear) to see how the nerve is hearing? My nerve is actually 100% but it can't make up for the little bones not working. My loss is greatest at low frequencies but I'm now falling with higher ones too--that's consistent with otoslcerosis too. My MIL and grandma have Menieres disease that affects the nerve and they are dizzy a lot---have you been dizzy any?


Dawn--how's A?

Yep, they did that test...and all the others too. Only dizziness was when I was in FLA and had the sinus infection and the ear infection I am waiting for the office to call with the Pre-Cert # so I can schedule the MRI. MIght as well get it all done BEFORE I go back to work, right!

Do they think it's related to the illness or maybe it brought it on earlier than expected? I asked about an MRI but he said they are not sensitive enough to see the little bones so they have to lift up the ear drum to see what's up. Just as well, I think they'd have to put me to sleep to do a MRI anyway....at least the closed one!!

He thinks it was a combination of the sinus infection/ear infection and the plane???

wow...the ENT this week asked me if I'd had any ear infections or trauma and I said no. My MIL had a bad childhood with lots of ear infections and no one to take her to the doctor....so she has a permanent loss from that. Do they think it will progress?

Janet, sorry about the ear. Glad the night went well, too.

The Chicago team did their presentation early this morning our time. I thought the voting was supposed to start at 1:00 - and they go through several rounds, eliminating the lowest vote getter until there's a winner - but D thinks they are announcing the actual winner at 1:00, so I'm not totally positive.

Either way, I'm debating a stop at home around 1:00 to see - I know ESPN2 said they'd carry the announcement live - so D is more likely correct (otherwise, how would they know when to show it?) and I might stop here to watch that before delivering the stuff to the school!

I'm now about a minute away from being late to tennis, and I need to find a headband, so I'll check back later!

He didn't say one way or the other. He wants to get the MRI done first before he says anything else one way or the other.

The funny thing is I had never had an ear infection before I got sick in FLA.

Oh no, I'm slightly deaf too but it's when there is background noise, must go for another check. Plus I must get my jaw checked, whenever I eat it cracks like mad, David says it's really loud


You all probably know as I posted on FB but I had a fantastic game of golf today. I played 5 over par when I'm meant to play 11 over, that also included 2 really bad holes so I'm very pleased

Thanks CE! Like I said, things could be worse...right!

I don't know how much we made, but it was fun On the Wedensday we are doing something similar at McDonald's. We only get 10% of those profits though. But the kids can wear their Halloween costumes and they have fun!

It's weird. I notice it mostly when I am trying to watch TV. I get and echo in that ear.

Good show! (Hey that sounds very British)

Happy Friday Everyone!

I'm so glad this week is over. Yesterday afternoon Evan came home from school acting a little weird so I checked him out and he was running a low grade fever. After a round of meds, he was fine the rest of the night and this morning woke up normal. Strange.

Anyway, I've got nothing dire to do today, but I think I'll clean out my closet and get it organized.


Janet - Sorry to hear about the hearing loss. I didn't realize you'd had an ear infection as well. Sounds like you had a fun night at the Slurpee place.

Jo - I had that popping noise in my jaw as well, but since I've had my braces put on, its gone.

Dawn - Let me know if the other person interested in your points bails out. I may be interested for January.
